BALTIMORE — Baltimore City Public Schools say someone working at an emergency meal site at City Neighbors Hamilton recently tested positive for COVID-19.

The individual reportedly began feeling symptoms on Tuesday, and may have had contact with others.

According to health experts, a person infected with COVID-19 is contagious two days before they start to show symptoms.

As of Friday, the Hamilton meal site has closed. Anyone having contact with staff working the location should self-monitor for symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath for 2-14 days.

There are still 17 other sites where meals and learning packets are available. The community will be notified when City Neighbors Hamilton reopens.
